The redevelopment plan for the historic masonry and wood building comprises the renovation and residential conversion to rental loft-style apartments. Included will be such lifestyle amenities as a fitness center, community rooms, bicycle storage, and new rooftop deck. An existing boiler structure along the south side of the building will be rebuilt with alterations to provide additional dwellings and common area uses. Work will include renovation and life safety improvements throughout the building, including the addition of a new enclosed stair from basement to roof. Exterior work will include the removal of two fire escapes from the north and south facades and the repair or replacement of masonry walls of face brick, terra cotta and sandstone. Existing wood double hung windows will also be repaired and replaced as needed.
